Protein Powder

I am aiming to increase my protein intake and I plan to supplement with protein powder PWOD.

Which whey protein powder's do you use? Also, does anyone know of a brand/type that is okay for people with lactose intolerance.

I searched around for this and I didn't find a previous thread. If this topic has already been discussed please let me know and I will delete this thread.

Thanks.

Re: Protein Powder

Anything without soy is good. I like Gold Standard 100% whey. THe strawberry banana isn't very good the rest are decent. This place
http://www.supplementcentral.com/ wfs has really good prices.

American Whey Protein

I buy 25 lbs buckets for about $140. Tastes like chocolate milk shake. Great product

Re: Protein Powder

Thank you.

Is there any significant difference between all these or is it just a matter or preference?

Re: Protein Powder

There's some difference, but not much. Pure whey is pure whey.

Re: Protein Powder

I've tried several, and I like Metabolic Drive best but I think it's mostly personal preference (I want a whey/casein mix, some want whey only):

Post-workout I usually mix it with some almond milk and a banana in my little one serving blender, quick and easy and basically no cleanup required.

Re: Protein Powder

My personal favorite is Isopure 100% Whey Protein Isolate.

Dutch Chocolate...tastes like heaven.

Not true. There are several fractions of whey and each has unique benefits.

In addition, the aforementioned Nitrean is not simply whey. It contains 3 fractions of whey (concentrate, isolate, and hydrolyzed isolate), casein, and egg proteins. The nutshell advantage is that it promotes a superior net retention of ingested protein vs. any whey-only powder.
